AIXM 5.2 workshop

After nearly 8 years of collaboration, the AIXM Change Control Board's work on the aeronautical information exchange model's (AIXM) version 5.2 is coming to an end. This new version of AIXM will bring support for new and updated aeronautical information requirements, such as Performance Based Navigation (PBN), Global Navigation Surveillance Systems (GNSS) and the International Civil Aviation Organisation's (ICAO) digital data sets among others.

We know that with every new release come many questions. To address them and provide additional insight into the changes brought by the new AIXM version, at EUROCONTROL we are organising a three-day roll-out workshop at our Brussels Headquarters.

Join the AIXM community and learn all about the new features of AIXM 5.2. Explore our agenda and fill out the form below to register. You can attend any of the three days based on your topics of interest.

This Workshop was initially foreseen for 10-12 March - learn more

For the moment, no new registrations are possible, as we are waiting for the previously registered participants to re-confirm their participation in June.

A new registration form will be made available by mid-April for the eventual seats that might remain available.
